Word has come from Anguilla’s Chief Minister, Mr Hubert Hughes, that he will be requesting Governor Christina Scott next week to dissolve the House of Assembly in preparation for the 2015 general election.

He made the announcement on Talk Anguilla on Radio Anguilla on Wednesday morning, February 11. “The constitution states that the House of Assembly shall be dissolved within five years after it first met,” the Chief Minister stated on the programme. “The House first met on February 26th 2010 and the House shall be dissolved on or before the 26th February 2015.

“Elections shall be held within two months after a dissolution of the House. By next week I should be informing the Governor officially and constitutionally that she should dissolve the House and should make preparations for elections.”
Other persons in the Anguillian community, conversant with the requirements of the constitution, and the electoral laws, have recently been expressing the view that the dissolution of the House of Assembly was an imminent matter.

Meanwhile, the Chief Minister said earlier that the actual date of the election was his “secret”.
